Tina Fey says "no way" she would host Oscars
Los Angeles: Comic actress Tina Fey says there is "no way" she would host the Oscars ceremony next year, despite getting a thumbs up from 'Star Trek' actor William Shatner in a sketch at Sunday's Academy Awards show.
The creator and star of TV comedy '30 Rock' told the Huffington Post website that she did not see herself as fronting the Oscars telecast.
"I just feel that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman - the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone...no way," she joked, during an interview with the Huffington Post posted on the website on Tuesday.
Asked if there was at least a one in a million chance, Fey replied, "I wish I could tell you there was."
Fey and 'Baby Mama' actress Amy Poehler both received rave reviews for hosting the Golden Globes awards for the first time in January.
In a sketch on Sunday with Seth MacFarlane, Shatner appeared from the future as 'Star Trek' Captain James T. Kirk in a running joke about the edgy 'Family Guy' creator's suitability as host of the most coveted honours in the movie business.
"Why couldn't they get Tina and Amy to host?" Shatner asked, to laughs from the audience packed with Hollywood stars.
TV critics panned the song-and-dance-heavy show and MacFarlane said on Tuesday that he would not consider hosting the Oscars a second time.
The Oscar host - considered both the highest honor and riskiest job in Hollywood - is usually chosen by the producers of the Academy Awards show and is generally announced about five or six months before the February ceremony.
